easier, wouldn't it? especially for passengers who played that waiting game, do you buy the ticket now, do you wait to see if the prize drop? kpix 5 reporter mark sayre shows us how to navigate air travel while saving the most money. reporter: >> runway 3-0 right. >> cleared for take-off 3-0 right american. >> reporter: clear for take-off into the summer skies and less leg room, high fares and all sorts of fees. just ask kristina swindlehurst. >> it means you have to plan in advance for everything. i mean, like even when i fly home from berkeley to san diego, i have to buy my ticket like three or four months in advance in order to get like a decent price on a seat. >> reporter: swindlehurst says she carefully planned this particular trip just to avoid as many bag fees as possible. >> we got -- there are two of us, we have four big ones for free and then the rest we're carrying on. >> reporter: with the economy rebounding, planes this summer are expected to be packed. and a survey from the online

speeding on the wrong side shes into a park while scene in fort lauderdale caught on video here, a wild scene. a driver speeding on the wrong side of the road crashes into a parked car. there it is. sends it right into the hotel pool. the owner of the parked car says she is lucky to be alive because she was minutes away from going downstairs to the parking lot when she saw that crash happen while standing on her balcony. the driver was taken to the
hospital with serious injuries. investigators still looking into exactly what happened. kpix 5's ken bastida is with mobile weather in contra costa county where a small community has had it with bike riders. ken, they're talking about extreme measures. >> reporter: yeah, that's right, elizabeth. welcome to the community of diablo here in unincorporated contra costa county. it is very exclusive here, homes can go in not only the millions but in the tens of millions of dollars. and they are having a problem with people cutting through this community to go up to mount diablo. specifically, road bikes and mountain bikes who want to access the trails up there. and a lot of people have been cutting through here. so the road and police services are going to consider a ban on bikes cutting through this exclusive community. now, alan wadsworth who lived here for 40 years says he doesn't like that idea. >> no problem with the bikes at all. >> reporter: you think it's a
little elitist of them to try to kick bikes out of here? >> it's just self-interest. it just -- they're -- they're following their own comfort level. they don't want to share the road with anybody. if they could have the road all to themselves, no other cars, why, they'd do it. >> reporter: so the complaints are fairly legitimate. you have people riding too fast, a lot of bikes in a row, people ignoring stop signs, a public safety issue in some cases. and sal gallagher also lives here. he says yeah, he gets that but they are cracking down on it right now. >> actually, about three, four months ago they parked a chp inside a diablo neighborhood and there's a guy standing there. he gave everyone who ran the stop sign a ticket for three weekends in a row. staking out a stop sign. legally we're supposed to stop at the stop signs but half the neighbors and the cars don't stop at the stop signs.
that's a true story. >> reporter: ironically, the amgen tour will be running about 100 yards behind this house going up to mount diablo. tomorrow there will be 10,000 people here in the community. and a lot of them will be on their own bikes. reporting live from diablo, i'm ken bastida, kpix 5. the countdown is on for sunday's bay to breakers race. mobile weather in san francisco kpix 5's roberta gonzales with runners gearing up. reporter: mobile weather rolled on up to the concourse exhibition center off 8th street here in san francisco. if you are going to be running this race, you have to be here either today or tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. now, the reason is, this is where the athletes, the runners, come and pick up their bib numbers and officially sign in and say that they're running the race. so far we have 28,000 people that will be running this race. and then we expect more thousands of runners to come in and just walk up and sign in. now, to give you a little history of the bay to breakers,
it was actually the great san francisco earthquake of 1906 that caused this race to be formed. it's true. it was civic leaders that thought the morale of the city was so down, so devastated from that great earthquake, they decided to form a cross-city race. it's 7.5 miles. here we are at 101 years later and it's still going strong. if you are one of the runners wondering about the race, the weather conditions couldn't be better. we're talking about the 50s at the starting line at 7 a.m. by the time you finish at the sotion, right around the low 60s at the ocean, with an afternoon high of 67 degrees. reporting from the concord exhibition center in san francisco with mobile weather, roberta gonzales, kpix 5. now in the studio, paul deanno with weather. thank you, roberta. we are talking about sunshine all weekend long. i love this perspective here. i know it's the toll plaza of the bay bridge but look what's happening behind it. not a single cloud in the sky. that means the onshore flow is beginning to weaken and it's all about the sunshine right now. here's a live look outside.
current temperatures we're talking about 69 degrees in concord. 67 for livermore. san francisco cool breezy 60. but santa rosa you did hit 70 degrees today. forecast lows for tonight, it should be very comfortable, keep the windows open in concord, low of 50. redwood city 50. san jose 51. and san rafael 47 degrees. here's the setup. low pressure is beginning to move out. look at all that rainfall out toward idaho and utah and northern nevada but that is moving away from us. what's moving toward us is high pressure. it's building in. it will be here for several days getting closer tomorrow, it will be sunny and still not warm. we'll save the warm coming up for sunday and monday. inland we may have highs approach 90 degrees. next week if you are not a fan of the heat, big strong area of low pressure will dye down from the arctic kicking up the onshore flow. after warm weather on sunday and monday we'll be cooling down efficiently after that. so what to expect? we have morning clouds along the coastline on saturday and sunday. otherwise, it's all about sunshine for bay to breakers and for your entire weekend. we will warm up all the way through monday.
we may even get close to 80 degrees near the bay coming up on monday. highs tomorrow concord up to 78 degrees. san jose up to 74. much closer to normal. warmer than today. redwood city you will hit 70. fremont 69 degrees. close to 80 in pleasant hill, walnut creek and danville, pleasanton 79 degrees. san rafael 74. berkeley close to 70. and 65 tomorrow for downtown san francisco. look at the warmup on sunday. we'll get even warmer on monday, close to 90 inland. then we begin to cool off and by the middle of next week, we'll be back down to the 60s near the bay and 70s inland. but once again another forecast, not too hot, not too cold, lots of sunshine, two thumbs up. >> perfect for watching all the great events this weekend. >> the kids hope it holds until they get out of school pretty soon. >> couple of weeks. don't remind us. summer is coming. >> it is. >> thanks. forget the onesies and the teething rings. the baby product industry is growing up. kpix 5 consumerwatch reporter julie watts on the new breed of baby merchandise that probably
a lot of our parents wish they had. reporter: from snot suckers to teething necklaces browse a boutique and you will hear this. >> they didn't have that stuff when we were kids. >> reporter: but parents nationwide are singing the praises of the new products like the teething necklace that makes things easier. >> i didn't wear jewelry. it's nice that she can chew on this. i have seen these used at restaurants for babies to be entertained so the parents can have dinner. >> reporter: there are styles to go from mom's neck to baby's mouth. and then there are products intended to use mom's mouth. so this seems really gross to me. but you say you can't keep it on the shelves. >> sometimes effectiveness overrides the disgusting factor. >> reporter: nurse nancy held explains you insert one in the nose and suck the snot from the other. while it may seem counselor it intuitive, she says it's sanitary and effective and you
don't end up with mucous in the mouth. >> it stays in the container and goes in the dishwasher. >> very handy. >> much better than the bulb thing. >> reporter: when it comes to feeding every new mom hears breast is best but now there are a series of products aimed at helping mom breast-feed longer like milk screens. >> a lot of women stop breast- feeding sooner than they might have wanted because they want to drink a glass of wine here and there. so these are great because you can be reassured that there isn't any alcohol in your milk. >> reporter: and for multitasking moms, the breast pump bustier is hands-free pumping. many parents today will tell you, they are just happy they don't have to. >> some stuff is excessive. there are different things that have become crucial. you want to play with it, don't you? >> reporter: now, in the vein of possibly unnecessary but helpful, we found these warmsies as well which heat the
bottle on the go similar to hand warmers. for information on these products go to >> great stuff. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
